Color Challenge at Burlap & Buttercups

Hi!! It was my turn to give a challenge on the B&B blog this past Friday and I wanted to give a color challenge of using blue and orange. Not sure why but the first thing that really jumped out at me from the January kit are the 2 sheets of Basic Grey Picadilly, the really pretty and vibrant flowery orange piece and the soft frilly blue one. I finally realized that these two are complimentary color so I guess that’s why I was so drawn to them. So that’s my challenge to you! Create a layout, card, or anything that suits your fancy using those 2 yummy colors.

For my first sample, I wanted to make to sure to use one of those sweet and adorable coat hangers!! So I found a dress template online, cut it out, and attached my coat hanger to make this card.

For this layout, I chose blue and orange pattern papers to be the main colors. I also added some details by using a bunch of banners made from all of the fabulous pattern papers from the January kit (which is sold out).

This is the first challenge of the month but there will be more challenges given each Friday so if you like to be challenged swing by and see what tickles your fancy. There is also a sweet prize to be won.........a $15 gift certificate to the B&B store!!

Can't wait to see what's created!
